The End-to-End Platform for NLP

Unlike conventional tools that provide partial solutions, Primer makes it easy for data scientists, developers, and end users to build and deploy intelligent applications quickly, securely, and at scale. Our solutions are modular and interoperable with other enterprise technologies, and can easily be integrated in your cloud and on-premises environments.

The End-to-End Platform for NLP: Ingest & Normalize Your Data, Leverage Pre-Trained Models, Customize Models or Build Your Own, Assemble Document Processing Pipelines, Make Insights Available to Everyone, Drive Business Value Across Your Applications.


Primer NLP Platform Capabilities


Ingest and normalize your data

NLP data ingestion and preparation is a huge bottleneck that takes up the majority of an ML team’s time. We built Primer so that you can start shipping more quality models, faster. We enable you to ingest data from dozens of different applications, filesystems, databases, and messaging systems. We support most popular file formats, and Primer’s ingest layer facilitates import, normalization, and cleaning of your data types, including batch and streaming data.

The End-to-End Platform for NLP: Applications, Databases, Data Warehouse. Open Source Data, PDF - Doc - Audio - Video, CSV - JSON - EXCEL


Leverage pre-trained models

Building NLP models from scratch is time consuming and difficult. Assemble your NLP solutions with our best-in-class pre-trained domain specific models. Use these models out of the box, and then easily customize them on your own data. Connect to our API from your chosen programming language, framework, or BI tool.

Primer’s model catalogue lives in an intuitive UI where you can see lineage. Give them a try, no code required.

List of Primer Engines


Customize models or build your own

Prefer to build your models from scratch? Primer lets you rapidly encode human insight and drive business value, whether you build your own models or customize our models for your use case. Label faster with LightTag’s team-based labeling and annotation management tools to ensure model quality and deliver outcomes you can trust. Label more efficiently with autoML strengthened by Data Map and active learning, no coding or technical skills required.

Data Map automatically surfaces potential mislabeled data so you know what to re-label to improve your model’s performance faster. Active learning identifies the labels that will best improve model performance, reducing the amount of labeled data needed to train a NLP model by up to 30x vs. conventional methods.

And you can upload your pre-labeled data, or let Primer give you a hand with labeling to save you even more time.

Assemble data processing pipelines

Pipelines combine multiple models, transformations, and operations together into a single, automated, end-to-end flow. They support any user assembling modular and reusable components inside a low-code UI to accomplish complex use cases. Pipelines also support branching depending on the output of previous steps.

Pipelines: Unstructured Data > Preprocess > Models >  Post Process > Knowledge Store


Make insights available to everyone

The knowledge store is a scalable store of structured and unstructured data allowing you to easily retrieve document and entity information. Primer supports full text and relational large-scale querying along with first-class customizable visualization tools, or you can use our API to build your own.


Drive business value across your applications.

Connect Primer directly into your applications and visualization tools to predict, automate, or gain insights into core areas of your business. Or you can leverage one of Primer’s purpose-built applications like Primer Analyze and Primer Command.

Any Data = Your Data + Open Source Data
